    Unhappy VHLinks Not Fully Loading - Black Screen?

    Anybody else having problems with the links not fully loading and just getting a black screen? (the blue bar and logo at left are still there though)

    Happening to me on 2 laptops and 1 PC using Firefox, Chrome and IE. So it's not an isolated thing.

    I've been having several issues lately, but this isn't one of them. My two biggest issues lately were an ad that covered the entire page (it eventually went away when a different ad loaded later in the day), and me being directed to an advertisers site. Not huge deals, but more like minor inconveniences.
    CNN may think my opinion matters, but you shouldn't.

    I've been having the same things happen^^^ to me. The black screen and ads had been acting up for about a week now.

    The funny thing is when I clicked on this thread all I got was a black screen. It took 3 times of reloading the page to actually get to the page.
    I used to jog but the ice cubes kept falling out of my glass.

    That's been my experience with IE. On another PC using an Ad blocker & Google Chrome, works fine.

    Odd. He usually tells me that if I send him my bank account information that he's going to send me a boat load of cash.

    Weird that he'd hack your laptop and get pissed because you wouldn't send him money...

    Yeah man....I'm on the site on my phone during the day, trying to get on at home on my pc is pretty frustrating. Weird, wacky stuff going on.

    Likewise getting this with Firefox. I thought it was a poor Internet connection on my end.
    I've also noticed that sometimes with Tapatalk, text in threads will not load and the app crashes.
    If you reopen it, everything appears.

    no problem with the ad, but the loading problem happens with Mozilla, IE and google chrome and is an issue on both my home and work laptops

    refresh solves the problem

    Only after having done so several times. I got the black screen coming to this very thread. I had to refresh five times before finally seeing anything. It's been happening all over the board too. Seems to be a little bit too frequent just to casually dismiss it like that. There is a problem imo.

    Default VHLinks Not Fully Loading - Black Screen?

    I have never had any of these issues but I use a Mac though.

    I don't have a PC so I can't speak to that. If I can't replicate it, hard for me to fix it. I'll have to check on the vbulletin site see if there is anything. This is obviously a new thing.
